I released netsane, a script to easily configure multipath routing under linux. While not perfect, nor particularly robust, it's been damn nice having my workstation truly multihomed and able to use both independent routes.
gshield, version 3, should be released Real Soon Now. Since I moved back to Virginia work on gShield has been slow, and I discovered this week that the former debian maintainer for gShield has not only orphaned the package, but actually urged against another maintainer taking it over. I would have preferred something a bit more constructive, but there you have it. I discovered a while back that gShield is included within Gentoo's package system, which was pleasing. Package system often -do- serve a vital function.
Dissertation work is still in limbo -- damn hard to be able to get into the mental space I require to write. I -need- to fix that.
